Additional information is being released about a fatal crash investigation that began Thursday evening.
On November 12, 2020 at 8:09p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a bicycle versus vehicle crash at East Burnside Street at Southeast 122nd Avenue. Portland Fire and Rescue paramedics responded as well, and the crash scene was located east of the intersection. Despite lifesaving measures taken, the bicyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The Portland Police Traffic Division Major Crash Team responded to assume the investigation. The vehicle, a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban, was going eastbound while the bicyclist was riding westbound in the single eastbound travel lane. They crashed head-on. Investigators believe that poor visibility was a factor in the crash. No arrests or citations have been issued, although the investigation is continuing. If anyone has information about this crash, please contact Officer Chris Johnson at 503-823-2213 or Chris.Johnson@portlandoregon.gov .
The deceased is identified as Antonio Sage Rodriguez, 28, of Portland. His family has been notified of his death.
